strong words as well from u.s. secretary of state john kerry. he's calling it an invasion, quote, it is an incredible act of aggression, really a stunning willful choice by president putin to invade another country. russia is in violation of the sovereignty of ukraine, russia is in violation of its international obligations, russia is in violation, kerry says, of its obligations under the u.n. charity, helsinki act, in violation as well of its obligations under the budapest agreement. he goes on to say, secretary kerry, you don't behave in a 19th century fashion by, again he uses this word, invading another country on completely trumped up pretexts. nato ambassadors are expected to hold an urgent meeting today on the situation in ukraine. our own erin mclaughlin is live. you have u.s. officials, secretary kerry calling this an invasion. what exactly are nato officials considering there? >> hi, jim. earlier today the nato secretary general gave a brief statement to the media in which he called on russia to deescalate tensions. take a listen to what he had to say. >> what russia is

a remarkable exclusive sit-down interview with secretary of state, john kerry, and made the news on everything from the crisis in the ukraine to north korea. take a listen. >>> what we're hoping is that russia will not see this as a sort of continuation of the cold war. we don't see it that way. we do not believe this should be an east/west russia/united states, this is not "rocky iv," believe me. >> why isn't this genocide? >> well, andrea, that gets into all kinds of definitions. what it is is wholesale killing of your own people. they have conducted executions using .122-millimeter aircraft guns to obliterate people and force people to watch these kinds of executions. this is an evil, evil place. and it requires enormous focus by the world in order to hold it accountable. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell with secretary kerry doing what andrea does best. we'll be watching for reactions from that wide-ranging interview all day. catch andrea's show at 12:00 p.m. eastern time here on msnbc. i am at 1:00. we make a great time. next up on "ronan farrow daily," a third of our country is plunging
are the countries trying to resolve this. russia in the east and eu and united states on the west and john kerry and lavrov have had a second day of discussing this issue on the phone and they have reached certain agreements, although, one thing they are both saying in common is that they do not want ukraine to split. that's what the new government in ukraine in kiev is saying as well. people here in crimea and 3/4 of the people here, ethnic russians speaking russian, a lot of them are now saying, you know what, there's a referendum in may about what we do. we would like to secede from ukraine now. we want to be with russia. >> bill neely, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >>> joining me now adam schiff, thank you for being here. we appreciate it. >> you bet. >> let's pick up on that point, russia denying involvement in that airport raid. do you believe russia? >> well, russia may not have been directly involved in the sense of sending russian troops to the airport, but that doesn't mean play being a role subross is a, they have a lot of levers at play to use in the ukraine. it is certainly t

hear the escalating alarm in secretary of state john kerry's voice. he spoke with sergei lavrov, his russian counterpart. jay carney's voice, he warned of a grave mistake if russia impinged upon the integrity of sovereign ukraine. president obama appeared in the briefing room at 5 o'clock and talked about cost to russia if they go ahead with what is apparently a military intervention. what are the costs. i spoke with a senior administration official. first and foremost they are talking about the g8. it's in sochi. that is familiar to most people, the site of the concluded winter olympics. hard to see how the g8, would join the americans and russia - it looks like that will be cancelled. russians said they want to keepen trade ties with the united states it's on hold. they are talking and pointing to the fact that the ruble appears to be losing value as part of the consequences that they see in the real world is taking place. >> president obama said a brief statement. here is part of it. >> we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation in
is the secretary of state, john kerry has been doing so. so, too, has chuck hagel, the secretary of defense. all making very loud and clear and public statements that they are watching. that they are concerned and that they want this to all be resolved peacely. russia is bound by treaty that it signed with other nations when ukraine first became independent after the fall of the soviet union. voluntarily gave up its nuclear arsenal. russia is bound by treaty, not to intervene in ukraine. so that is the legal basis that people are hoping will be respected. >> christiane amanpour, appreciate your insight this morning. thanks so much. >>> also new this morning, tensions are rising along the korean peninsula. south korea says its communist neighbor to the north, north korea, has fired four short-range missiles into the east sea. north korea has been protesting joint military drills that are now being conducted by the united states and south korea. >>> a routine flight from los angeles to oakland ended with a quick evacuation in almost complete darkness for passengers and crew aboard a delta sky west

john kerry is going to have difficult fi in explaining america's position when it comes to equal rights. >> josh, these things get pushed in the republican legislatures by the ted cruz wing of republicanism, which is number one, we don't care about the party. number two, we just want to cast this vote. we don't care. we would like to win, but if we don't win, it's important for us to cast this vote saying we want this. how is anyone going to be able to suppress that in the republican legislatures? >> i think it's happened in arizona right now. i think you're seeing in ohio, the bill that was proposed has been withdrawn by its sponsors. there are certain things that have tremendous grassroots energy behind them on the right. where there's resistance, business group, certain national politicians like mitt romney trying to push the party to the center on this issue. in some cases you get a lot of pu pushback. i think there's a real distinction to be drawn in arizona. people look at sb-1070, the anti-immigration bill. why did she veto this but sign that. sb-1070 is popular in arizona. she's
john kerry was in kiev arriving with $1 billion loan package for the country's faltering economy the secretary issued a forceful rebuttal to russia and offered the kremlin a diplomatic off-ramp to the 21st century. >> we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression in its diplomacy and respect for sovereignty not unilateral force that can best solve disputes like this in 291st century. this is the 21st century, and we should not see nations step backwards to behave in 19th or 20th century fashion. there are ways to resolve these differences, great nations choose to do that appropriately. >> but given president putin's statements on ukraine thus far, it's clear that that off-ramp will remain unused for the moment. putin made fairly ludicrous statements. he said the soldiers in the ukraine, those 6,000 men patrolling cry meia, those were not russian forces at all. he insisted they were, quote, local defense forces and call the people's uprising against ukrainian president viktor yanukovych an unconstitutional coup and said they were sitting in a laboratory and running experim
